I Knew Bill Clinton, Bill Clinton was a friend of Mine...
Barak Obama is no Bill Clinton.
Obama might be the consummate orator. Bill Clinton was the consummate politician (like him or not). Obama's first month showed just how "green" (as in inexperienced) he is. Clinton knew which way the political winds were blowing and how to triangulate his own party AND the opposition to his benefit. Obama has been run over by Speaker Botox and Majority Leader Limp (fill in the blank), and his tacking between the sandwich board with the tag line "The End is NEAR" and last night's rah-rah shows clearly the liability of electing a "community organizer" with 4 years of Senate experience to the White House.
Obama's campaign was brilliant. So far his governing is lacking in that department. I sincerely hope he finds his way - and soon.
